Our Voice: WHY WE SHOULD FEAR PROHIBITION, NOT LEGALIZATION OF MARIJUANA

It’s not that legalization of marijuana must be approved, it is that the prohibition must be ended.

Why should we fear the prohibition of marijuana?

How about because every test on a baggie of pot for a $100 ticket or petty criminal charge means a crime lab test of a rape kit has to wait.

How about the weed dealers in parking lots and hallways, dealing without any regulations or ID checks.

How about the marijuana growing facilities taking over suburban neighborhoods because there are no legal places available for commercial grows.

How about drug enforcement agencies breaking down doors over a pot plant, abusing families and sick people, while the rapist, murderer, and thief escape detection.

These evils are the result of the prohibitionary status quo.  These evils are why we should fear prohibition, not legalization.
